Apex Legends weapons and armor are the two crucial items that all players must have a good grasp of. If you know how legendary weapons and armor work in Apex Legends, you will find it easier to use them to deal with the enemies around you. There are four legendary pieces of armor and two legendary weapons featured in the game currently. Let’s learn how to use them smartly!
How to use legendary armor and weapons in Apex Legends game
About the legendary armor
Now, let’s begin the guide with the legendary armor. As mentioned above, Apex Legends is currently featuring four legendary pieces of armor. Depending on the style of play and the chosen character that you have, you can pick them up. They are:
- Legendary Backpack: This kind of legendary armor will make the healing items utilized in half the time.
- Legendary Body Shield: This legendary armor allows you to regenerate your shield completely after you have finished off a fallen enemy.
- Legendary Helmet: Thanks to this legendary armor, there is a decrease in the cooldown of tactical and ultimate skills
- Legendary Knockdown Shield: This legendary armor allows you to self-resurrect once. The ability will vanish once it is used.
Every single piece of Apex Legends legendary armor has its own benefit, however, they all have to be obtained in a tactical way. For instance, a Legendary Knockdown Shield’s Resurrection is able to save your game literally, however, reaching down in a place where you cannot be protected by your team while you revive will not be effective. You could become vulnerable if you attempt to take advantage of Fast Health in the firefight. A full shield after a finisher with Executioner can only become useful if you have a chance to use it.
About the legendary weapons
Alternatively, you can also depend on legendary weapons in Apex Legends to defeat enemies. Make sure you keep in mind that Legendary Weapons and Legendary Attachments are completely different than Legendary Gear. For Legendary Gear, it is obvious to pick them up and use them to the best of your ability. But for the Legendary Weapons, you will choose the weapons mostly based on your likings.
At the moment, there are only two legendary weapons featured in Apex Legends, namely the Mastiff shotgun and the Kraber sniper rifle with changing optics. Also, you can even search for common “legendary” weapons that are still considered as conventional weapons.
For the current “legendary” weapons, you are able to exchange the added pieces easily, while you can’t do that to the Mastiff and Kraber. Another important thing about Mastiff and Kraber you need to know is that these two weapons only drop from Supply Drops, so you cannot find them early game, and collecting them would be the obvious choice. You must test them for yourself in order to better make a decision on if you should change them when the match progresses.
